Sassoon's Heart Beatings: The Collected Poetry Of Elias Sassoon
There are fifteen chapters in this book of poetry. In each chapter there are appropriately 20 to 25 poems. The chapters topics include ones exploring self, humor, places I've been, early youth, relationships with my father and mother, one on ravings, another on death, and another on personalities from work, among others. Here is one poem of the many: CHILD COUNTING Counting now. Today putting the digits together. One, two, three, four, six. No says the teacher, wrong says the teacher. One, three, four, five, six. No says the teacher, wrong says the teacher. One, two, four, five, six. Wrong again says the teacher. The boy looks at the teacher. The boy says to the teacher. It doesn't matter at all ever. The teacher looks at the boy. The teacher says. One, two, three, four, five, six. The close of another school day.
